Crossing the Yare and Bure

Where are there crossings over the Yare and Bure. Cycle.travel seems to suggest there aren't many. I just wondered if local knowledge might be better.

Really need to know where from and where to? Just zoom in on Google Earth?

East of Norwich, I assume? No, there really aren't many. Only Reedham Chain Ferry (£1, 0630MF/0800SS - 2000) over the Yare between Norwich and Yarmouth; and Acle and Wroxham bridges and Horning Foot Ferry over the Bure.

for the yare it's norwich, reedham or yarmouth - otherwise you need to swim

the bure has a fair few places to cross it except for the bits between wroxham and acle and acle and yarmouth (which to be fair is most of it!)
